Thousands of years of Irish culture meet modern charm in Ireland’s capital city. Dublin has become a center of high-tech industry and learning, but it still maintains a sense of its historical past. With just over one million inhabitants, this small capital provides the amenities of a much larger city – from fantastic shopping avenues and renowned restaurants to diverse cultural edifices. If you’re interested in the past, Dublin’s beautifully preserved mansions, castles, museums, churches streets, parks, and docks will conjure up historical events dating from the time of the Vikings on through the Easter Rebellion. On the other hand, if the latest in fashion, top restaurants, or club DJ’s is more your thing, Dublin offers that and more. Spend some time to get to know the city, its side streets, and suburbs like Howth, Dalkey, or Malahide. Catch a play, watch a hurling match, and spend time talking to people in the pubs. And if Dublin is not enough, there are excellent bus and rail links to other parts of the country as well as to Continental Europe and Britain by ferry or inexpensive student flights. There will be limited number of placements, so we recommend applying early.
